I hope you'll be playing along too! It's easy...and you can join us anytime. If you decide to upload to SCS, be sure to use the keyword BVC08. Plus...I'd love to see YOUR project, so be sure and leave me a comment along with a link to your project too! For more details on this challenge, check out my first DD post, HERE. I promised to show you the method I'd be using to display my card, but the item I sent for, didn't work as I'd hoped. So...for now, I'm just setting my card in a prominent spot where I'll see it several times each day...and that's working just fine. I have a couple of other ideas I may use for displaying and I'll share those with you in future posts. My daughter, Megan chose her scripture from Psalms this month & here's the bookmark I made for her.
Meg & I both LOVE Elzybells so I surprised her by using this new stamp, Flower Girl, just released in January...you can see more new Elzybells stamps over at the Elzybells blog!
A few years ago, I came across a commentary on the Fruit of the Spirit, from the Max Lucado Devotional Bible. I thought you might enjoy it too:
For the next twelve hours I will be exposed to the day's demands. It is now that I must make a choice. Because of Calvary, I'm free to choose... I choose love. No occasion justifies hatred; no injustice warrants bitterness. Today I will love God and what God loves.I choose joy. I invite my God to be the God of circumstance.I choose peace. I will live forgiven. I will forgive so that I may live. I choose patience. I will overlook the inconveniences of the world. Instead of cursing the one who takes my place, I'll invite him to do so.I choose kindness. I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone. Kind to the rich, for they are afraid. And kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me. I choose goodness. I will go without a dollar before I take a dishonest one. I choose faithfulness. Today I will keep my promises.I choose gentleness. Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. I choose self-control. I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal. I will be drunk only by joy. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek His grace. And then, when this day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest.
